 Post subject: Introducing soy...

My little one is 11 months, and she had 2 negative skin tests for soy (6.5months and 9months). She's had soy lecithin and didn't have any problem with it. When I have soy and breastfeed her, she doesn't react either (like she did for milk)... I'm going to test it on her skin first, to see if she gets a rash, but I'm wondering if it's a good idea... Problem is, I need to wean her at least partly (she's still on 100% breastmilk) after she turns 1, and I need some kind of milk replacement. The allergist said that we could introduce soy formula at this point, but I'm still worried...

Is there any reason she can't still have breastmilk? The WHO recommends it for two years. If you're able to provide it, that would probably be the easiest.

I know it says to go to 2 years, but I cannot handle the elimination diet (dairy, eggs, barley, fish, nuts, peanuts, beef, seafood) much longer. I'm having trouble keeping weight on and I'm definitely lacking energy in spite of eating all the time! Also, this whole pumping at work thing is getting tiresome! So far, she's still on 100% BM (including 12-16oz at daycare), which I am very proud of at this point! I feel really bad to wean her, but it's a very personal decision...

But we did try soy yogourt this weekend and she did fine!! :D So I guess I'll give her soy formula when I'll start weaning, and she'll do well on that too!

I had no idea you were back to work already and trying to manage your own specialized diet and being the sole provider of milk. Yikes that seems difficult to keep up. I can totally understand your decision to introduce soy formula.
